Local Natives premiere new song Past Lives listen
Apr 29, 2016 9:50am | Cosequence Of Sound
With the exception of a few one-off remixes and covers, Local Natives have kept a low profile since the release of 2013’s stellar album Hummingbird — that is, until this week. Following social media teasers and the last-minute announcement of an intimate San Francisco gig, the LA indie rockers have put out a brand new song called “Past Lives”.
Effervescent, busy percussion and lush harmonies highlight the track, with Local Natives operating in their comfort zone but pushing for something a little deeper. “Save me from the prime of my life,” they plead, before nifty guitar work and lustrous keys cut in around the 2:40 mark.
Stream it below.
While this is the first official release of “Past Lives”, the song has been played live in the past and featured in an episode of Netflix’s Flaked.
It’s unclear whether a new album is on the way, but the band has revamped its website, uploaded a new press photo (seen above), and reportedly played new material at last night’s Bay Area show. Local Natives are also scheduled to appear at a handful of festivals this summer, including Lollapalooza and End of the Road.

Courtney Love dumped Billy Corgan after he refused to pay for her airline flight
Apr 29, 2016 8:47am | Cosequence Of Sound
Prior to her relationship with Kurt Cobain, Courtney Love was romantically involved with another ’90s grunge icon, Smashing Pumpkins frontman Billy Corgan.
As Alternative Nation points out, Love discussed her relationship with Corgan in an extended interview that appears on the DVD version of Brett Morgen’s Cobain documentary Montage of Heck. Specifically, she revealed that Corgan “kind of lost me” after he refused to pay for an airline flight.
“When [Kurt and I] were still platonic, I was on the ferry, Billy Corgan would not pay for my flight back from Roskilde, and Nirvana had played with the Pumpkins at that show, so I was on the ferry with the Nirvana guys,” Love explained.
“I had a crush on Kurt, he was gorgeous, I mean he was beautiful, and enigmatic, and evasive. This was after Reading, but I still was dating and sleeping with Billy Corgan, but he kind of lost me at this moment, this wasnt the moment that he specifically lost me, that would be about six to eight months later, but he kind of lost me at this moment.'”
Thanks to Corgan’s penny pinching, Love and Cobain began dating in the fall of 1991 and were married within six months. Only recently did Love and Corgan reconcile.
Die Like A Rockstar: Excess, Romanticism and Mysticism
Apr 29, 2016 8:43am | Drowned In Sound
"The road of excess leads to the palace of wisdom" William Blake
"The poet makes himself a seer by an immense, long, deliberate derangement of all the senses." Arthur Rimbaud
The philosophy of "live fast, die young" is deeply embedded in rock culture. The concept of rock stars dying at a young age is so common that it has become somewhat of a popular culture cliché, with the term frequently used for anyone living an extreme lifestyle. Whilst the excess-fuelled deaths of a number of young musicians is more than an unfortunate coincidence, it is a key part of the ideology and mythology of rock. As the musicologist Sheila Whiteley writes: "Self-destruction - whether drug-related, suicide or the result of severe risk-taking - is ... curiously related both to the excesses of a rock 'n' roll lifestyle and to much of the litany of its songs" (Whiteley,2005, p 157). These excesses are embedded in rocks culture, founded upon a belief in interrelated personal and aesthetic freedoms.
Artists are individuals with their own particular vision and their lives are seen as something exceptional as they set themselves in contrast to the "conformist masses". They are "rebels", standing "outside" society in order to critique it, often by indulging in acts that "common morality" considers taboo. As Matthew Bannister writes in his White Boys, White Noise:...
